Inspirational Women of Botany
Sat, Oct 13, 2012, 10:00am
Polly Hill Arboretum
West Tisbury
 
General Admission: $20.00
PHA Member: $10.00
Women have been expert practical botanists since pre-history, as gardeners, cooks, herbalists, and midwives, but many have also become recognized professional botanists who have contributed widely to plant science. From authoring the first botany textbooks to establishing the science of ecology, women botanists did it all. Join author Judith Sumner to explore the role of women in botanical studies and documentation—including the significant work of our own Polly Hill. Women also protected biodiversity by founding the N.E. Wild Flower Society and other conservation groups, and the work of Beatrix Farrand and others laid the groundwork for a new environmental approach to landscape design.
Promoted by:
Polly Hill Arboretum
Come celebrate the many roles of women in practical and scientific botany.
